Sliding glass doors give you a wide view of the world outside, helping you connect with your surroundings. But it can be difficult to find a sleek window treatment, since they’re wide, glide horizontally and have hand levers and locks.
We’ve found five of the best window treatments for sliding glass doors in Austin to help you find the best choice.
When you go with a window treatment pros like Louver Shop of Austin, you’ll have the choice to simply customize your new window treatments. With a selection of colors, fabrics and automated operating systems to go with, your home can look just how you envision it.
1. Sliding Shutter Panels
Plantation shutters might not be the first product you’d think about for your patio door. But bypass or bifold shutters are an incredible way to enhance energy efficiency. Or fit with the rest of the shutters in your space. As they push or fold out of the way, they give you privacy when you need it and bring the light when you are looking for it.
When you select a customized plantation shutter manufacturer like Louver Shop of Austin, you’ll have the power to pick your material, color, louver size and more. We provide four top-of-the-line bypass and bifolding styles, from premier American hardwood and polymer to a mixture of the two.
Our shutters are maintenance-free and include a lifetime limited warranty for peace of mind.
2. Sheer Shades
Sheer shades from Hunter Douglas look like curtains but have the usefulness of blinds. This window treatment has sheer, semi-opaque or opaque fabric to convert blinding sunlight into a friendly glow. Cord-free adjustable vanes hang between the sheers for privacy and light control.
There’s a reason Silhouette® shades have stayed a interior design top pick for more than 25 years. This window treatment is thoroughly customizable, so you can select from a collection of different materials and colors to figure out the best look for your home.
Looking for room-darkening capabilities? You can customize your sheer shades to include the Duolite® roller shade.
3. Sliding Panels
For the most contemporary look, there’s Skyline® sliding panels from Hunter Douglas. A updated take on panel track blinds, these large fabric vertical blinds are guaranteed to show a statement on tall windows.
When you’re not using them, the panels simply come together to create an uncluttered view. When in use, they exhibit their beautiful colors and designs.
When customizing your sliding panels, you’ll have more than 600 options to choose from—starting with colors and textures to a variety of opacities.
4. Honeycomb Shades
Did you realize your home’s windows lose up to a third of your heating and cooling? Honeycomb shades are a good fix to increase your house’s energy efficiency, specifically on large openings like sliding glass doors.
But just because you’re thinking about saving energy doesn’t mean you have to give up on style. This shade provides a drape-like feeling through soft fabric shades.
To individualize your home’s energy savings, you can choose from single-, double- and triple-cell options. With up to six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets, Duette® provides one of the most energy-efficient window coverings you can order.
5. Roman Shades
Roman shades are one of the most versatile window treatments for sliding glass doors.
When raised, they stack or fold into orderly pleats. When closed, they provide a smooth, drape-like appearance, plus the strength of energy-efficient window coverings.
With Solera®, you can save energy with sleek style. This hybrid window treatment has the look of a Roman shade but offers the mighty insulating abilities of a honeycomb shade. Plus, you’ll have a full collection of luxury woven and non-woven textiles to pick from as you customize your window coverings.
Need the look of a sliding panel that can be conveniently moved? Vignette® achieves all that without cords to distract from the outside view.
Even better, there’s a collection of sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening options to select from. You can also upgrade your Vignette shades with Architella® for added insulation or Duolite® for blackout capabilities.
